You're Not A Kid Anymore...

What do you miss not being a kid? Not necessarily things you never do, but those things you do far less of now vs. when you were a kid. I'll get us started with two simple, silly things I miss.

I miss giggling as much as I did when I was a kid. And I miss how my body moved to music with no regard for tempo. I love dancing. But as an adult, I'm acutely aware of moving with the beat. Watch kids sometime  - there is little thought re the beat; their heads sway, their arms flail, beat be damned. Let's face it, giggling and moving to music willy-nilly are things we do less of because of inhibitions, an adult word if ever there was one. Before I get a little more serious, weigh in - What silly things do you miss not being a kid?

I sincerely wish I had a dollar for every time I've heard an adult say "I'm not creative"; for every person who says it, there is a unique story. However, I submit the crux of many of those stories involves something  people miss not being kids. How many kids have you ever heard say "I'm not creative"? Why is that?
